SUBARU BOXER ENGINE

Why SUBARU BOXER Engine?

The boxer engine derives its name from the horizontal movement of its pistons, which resembles the quick, jab-like motions of a boxer's fists. Although not a global standard, Subaru remains solely committed to the SUBARU BOXER engine because it embodies the Subaru promise of delivering enjoyment and peace of mind to all passengers. It also represents our steadfast commitment to technological innovation and engineering excellence.
